All in for Linux!

Post by essjam »

Hey everybody,
I introduced myself back in 2016 when I switched my laptop over to Linux Mint 17.3 - Cinnamon. This is an update to that. Today was the final switch-over to an all Linux household. I had kept my old Windows 7 machine as long as possible because it was so familiar. With the expiration of W7 support from Microsoft as of January 14, 2020, it was time to bite the bullet. I was admittedly a little nervous when the format of the W7 machine took place, but so far so good. I have a laptop and a custom build tower both now running Linux Mint 19.3 - Cinnamon. Plus a Raspberry PI for file sharing between the two. See ya on the forums.

Cheers
Scott

I installed Linux Mint last week on my hard drive, having pulled and set aside my SSD with Windows 7, just in case. Yeah, it's going to feel weird re-formatting that SSD, kinda like saying good-bye to an old friend. I just don't have the nerve yet.

Hi Scott!

Good to hear that you're now a fully Linux household. Unfortunately my other half insists on using Windows 10 on her laptop. I had to do a reinstall on it the other day when it wouldn't progress past the login screen; even restarting in safe-mode wouldn't work! I was so tempted to just install LM but she's a big MS Word user and refuses to learn anything else. :roll:
